Question

# What will be the volume of gas at STP which is liberated at anode on electrolysis of $$CuSO_4$$ solution by a current of $$5$$ ampere for $$2$$ minutes?

A
0.0995 L
B
0.0672 L
C
0.0174 L
D
0.0348 L

Solution

## The correct option is C $$0.0672$$ L$$i= 5 \ amp$$$$t= 2 \ min =2 \times 60 \ sec$$$$Cu^{2+} \ n=2$$$$Atomic \ Mass = 63.5 \ g$$$$m= \cfrac {Atomic \ Mass}{n \times F} \times i \times t$$$$\cfrac {m}{Atomic \ Mass}= \cfrac {i \times t}{n \times F}$$$$Moles = \cfrac {i \times t}{n \times F}$$$$Moles = \cfrac {5 \times 2 \times 60}{2 \times 96500}=0.003$$$$1$$ mole at STP $$\rightarrow 22.4 \ L$$$$0.003$$ mole at STP $$\rightarrow 22.4 \times 0.003 = 0.0672 \ L$$Chemistry
